Folders in Velo Vision 27

As usual, the latest issue of Velo Vision (number 27, the escapist issue) contains a number of items of interest to folder enthusiasts. The report on Eurobike 2007 shows a number of new and potential new folders, and there are also full test reports on the Mobiky Genius and the Strida 3. The reports on these two are quite favourable - the Mobiky seems alarmingly heavy at 14Kg though. The findings on the Strida are very similar to those in our own report, which you can read HERE. Velo Vision is also reporting on its web site that a new version of the 14-speed Rohloff hub gear is expected to appear in prototype form next year, with a slightly wider overall gear range and a reduction in weight.
